It's 13.25" wide and about 12" tall. The top has an engraved design.The strips on the sides are hammered flat where they meet the top, bottom, and center pieces. The flare is noticeable - it isn't just prior to the point the pieces meet - it begins about 1.5 prior. I've seen these electrified. It would make an awesome chandelier. It's also awesome just as is! Covered with a light layer of rust - great patina. The chain is old, but I wouldn't think it's original. No damage or missing pieces.
